Make the most of living and working in Kobe

Expat living in Kobe raises plenty of questions, for instance: ʺWhat are the requirements from Japanese authorities to get a residence permit?”, ʺIs a bow or a handshake the acceptable way of greeting a Japanese person?ʺ, or ”Who can recommend postal services in town?”

Finding all this expat information about living and working in Kobe takes a lot of time. Our Kobe expat guide is there to make your relocation to Kobe as easy as possible. Starting with housing and household to information about food & shopping, the guide covers all the different aspects of expat life in Kobe.

Of course, InterNations is active far beyond Kobe. Please feel free to explore our expatriate guide on living in Hong Kong or living in Rome.
